Thread: Apostle guessing game

  1. #1

    Default Apostle guessing game

    So who will be the next Apostles. They will be younger than 70. I doubt someone in his late 60,s will be called. Some of my guesses either made a cut or didn,t. They work business hours at office but there work schedule much more than business hours. Travel at least 40 weekends a year and I would guess 6 to ten weeks a year. Limited family and recreation time four hours of sleep. Who likes to work that schedule? Tell you die too. Seventies at least get to enjoy retirement.

    If he is American will hear Fusnik and John Dehlin Hillary about not calling foreign Apostle time for that. Like God told someone before they were born I will send you somewhere then when the planet I send you too orbits its star 60 times you will get a lifelong appointment across sea leaving family permanently in homeland and having to learn language. If the Lord really thought it was that important couldn,t he of sent that person to a foreign country at birth.

    Also another trivia no prophet filed vacancy of another prophet. Though a couple Presidents of twelve have. Jeff might be first to do so. New Apostles new Prophet in waiting via longevity. Could have that happen this time. So who will it be.

    It’s been so long since I watched GC regularly that I have no clue who the up and comers might be. It would be great for the church if a Latino were called though.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I don’t think we have enough nepotism in the apostleship these days. I would like to see another Oaks, Hinckley, or Packer called.

    He seems to be a little more out front lately. Would be an excellent choice.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Sooner is still a member - maybe they should call him.

    I don't know who she is, where she picked it up, or how big it is, but I voted for Gerri's Gong!

    I thought he had resigned.

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    Then a call to an apostleship should be enough to bring him back.

    The correct answer is Gifford Nielsen.

    Jon S(teven) Young will be called in a future vacancy.

    My guess is that it will be another old white guy, because we're not done teaching the progmos that they can't get what they want by speaking evil of the Lard's Annointed.

    Does Elder Bednar have any prodigies?

    A good choice would be Qualsie Anthony, from the West African Regional authority counsel.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    This should be the right answer to show that a mission isn’t for everyone, especially if you are going to play QB at BYU.

    This would be good for BYU sports but not great for the Church.

    I'm not too familiar with Qualsie Anthony. From a practical point of view, one challenge of calling someone from Africa, Latin America, Asia, etc. is that so many of those dudes seem to be hardliners.
